Rationality in Action: Look at a Problem as an Outsider

YouTube Description:

Julia Galef describes "the commitment effect" as the condition of sticking with a business plan or a career or a relationship "long after it has become quite clear that it's not doing anything for us" because we have an irrational commitment to whatever we have been doing for a while." In other words, we don't like to idea of our past investment having gone to waste or because it's become part of our identity. Galef is the President of the Center for Applied Rationality (http://appliedrationality.org/)
